Portland guard Brandon Roy has a torn meniscus in his right knee and may miss the NBA playoffs.

The three-time all-star will miss the Blazers final two games of the regular season including Wednesday's finale against Golden State.

He will require surgery and will be out from four to six weeks.

Roy may try to play with the injury in the playoffs.

"I want to play," Roy said. "It's the playoffs. You play 82 games and take a beating just to get to this point."

Roy is the Blazers' leading scorer with 21.5 points per game. He injured his knee in the opening quarter of the Blazers 91-88 victory at the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.

The Blazers have secured a spot in the postseason, but their opponent has yet to be determined.
